NEW YORK – Law360 announced today that Bracewell LLP has been selected as 2018 Practice Group of the Year for White Collar. Bracewell is one of five firms honored this year for the outstanding achievements in the white collar arena.
The White Collar Practice Group of the Year recognition comes on the heels of white collar and trial veteran Stephen L. Braga’s arrival in Bracewell’s Washington, DC office, where he will anchor the firm’s national white collar practice. Braga has played a leading role in many high-profile white collar cases and investigations over the course of his 35-year career, including defending PR executive Michael Scanlon in the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal and defending ABC and Chris Wallace at trial against defamation claims arising from a “Primetime Live” news broadcast.
Law360, a Portfolio Media, Inc. publication, annually identifies Practice Groups of the Year based on the significance, size, complexity and quantity of significant representations completed successfully over the past year. Law360 editors reviewed more than 750 submissions from leading US law firms to select the 2018 winners.
